The MathAction Assistant is a new interactive toolbar that appears at
the bottom of the 'edit' and 'Add comments' windows. It helps users
edit text containing LaTeX, Axiom and Reduce commands. MathAction
Assistant is especially intended for new users who may not be
familiar with LaTeX, Axiom or Reduce commands.

You may insert many commands into the edit/comment windows without
typing. Just point at the text or symbol in the toolbar that refers
to the command you need and click the mouse. The text of the command
will be inserted at the location of the cursor.

Click on the symbols in the top row of the toolbar to expand or
shorten the list of commands.

In most cases you can build more complex commands by first selecting
some text in the edit window, then clicking the the appropriate command
in the toolbar. The text which you had previously highlighted will be
inserted at the appropriate place in the command and the result will
be pasted into the edit window.

MathAction Assistant is not intended as complete command editor for
LaTeX, Axiom or Reduce. Only a carefully selected set of simple and
basic commands are included in the menus. For information on these and
other commands, the user is encouraged to search the web site (using
the search box in the top right corner of the browser window) and the
full documentation for either LaTeX, Axiom or Reduce.

Suggestions for improving MathAction Assistant would be greatly
appreciated. Comments and questions from new users of Axiom and Reduce
are especially encouraged to comment. Your input will help us make
the Assistant a more useful tool for everyone!
